How to Request Access
Everyone with a @ucsf.edu email address has access. However, a separate license is needed for desktop and mobile apps and some add-ins. A license can be requested using the Office 365 License Request form.
NOTE: You must be on VPN to use the desktop client for Microsoft Teams
Microsoft Teams is a collaboration app that helps your team stay organized and have conversations—all in one place.
Teams - Find channels to belong to or create your own. Inside channels you can hold on-the-spot Zoom meetings, have conversations, and share files.
Meetings - See everything you’ve got lined up for the day or week. Or, schedule a Zoom meeting. This calendar syncs with your Outlook calendar.
Activity - Catch up on all your unread messages, @mentions, replies, and more.
Use the command box at the top to search for specific items or people, take quick actions, and launch apps.
Microsoft Teams connects with many of the applications that you use everyday. If there is a connector, add-in or integration that you would like to be added to Microsoft Teams, please submit a request via ServiceNow. Learn more about Office 365 Enhancement Requests.
- GitHub - Work better in GitHub with real-time updates, actionable conversations, all from within Microsoft Teams
- Webhooks - Webhooks help to connect web services to channels and teams in Microsoft Teams.
- RSS Feed - RSS is a popular web syndication format used to publish frequently updated content into Microsoft Teams
